Trump Plaza Hotel And Casino To Be Impoded Wednesday At 9 A.M.
Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City will be destroyed Wednesday at 9 a.m. The hotel was once owned by Donald Trump. It will meet its inglorious end after a series of events. The mayor of Atlantic city disparaged Trump, which led to a charitable auction that would have had the winner literally press the button to blow up the casino. Billionaire developer Carl Icahn's lawyers sent a cease-and-desist letter to the auction house, and Ichan himself donated $175,000 to Atlantic County Boys & Girls Club. Bette Midler tweeted that she was going to pay for the viewing rights of the implosion.
Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino will be demolished Wednesday at 9 a.m. All the money raised from the auction will go to the Boys & Girls Club. The building was declared a public safety hazard in 2020. It was originally scheduled to be destroyed on January 29, but the deadline was extended. The auction house owner is confident the bidding will rise and the building will fall. He is also confident that the amount raised will reach $500,000. Icahn's lawyers sent a cease-and-desist letter to Bodnar's Auctions.
Icahn Enterprises stopped the sale of Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino. The sale was cancelled. Icahn donated $175,000 and a second auction was held to have front-row seats to Wednesday's implosion. That raised $16,00. Trump's hotel and casino was one of three Trump-owned casinos in Atlantic City. It was the site of numerous pro boxing championship matches.
